I was relieved to hear my wife and I are under no obligation as Catholics to breed like rabbits. Good work if you can get it some might say, but it is rather tiring.
I must point out that the Pontiff is the eldest of five children, which means that his rabbit comment could be viewed as a swipe at his mother. Ironically he had just mentioned he would punch anyone who insulted her the other day. Is he now going to have to flagellate himself? Younger siblings might point out that it is usually the eldest in the family who says no more kids are needed.
Anyway he seems unnecessarily fixated on the copulatory habits of rabbits. Does he think Beatrix Potter wrote 50 Shades of Grey? Frankly, I prefer the practice of randy rabbits to more religious examples from the Animal Kingdom like the Praying Mantis. The female mantis bites off the male’s head while in the act of mating, which gives the phrase getting some head a darker meaning.
Bugs Bunny, Br’er Rabbit, Harvey, Thumper, Hazel, Peter Cottontail, Roger Rabbit, The White Rabbit and the Easter Bunny never seemed oversexed to me, although Bugs did cross dress a lot.
I like this Pope, he seems for the most part to be balanced appropriately given his role. However the rabbit comment demonstrated his tongue has a bit of a hare trigger (forgive the pun). In any event, to use his phrase, who am I to judge? I will just note for the record that carrots are not the new oysters.
